  2. In the window that appears, select your Office 365 account and then click the Advanced…button.

  3. Click the Delegates tab. In the section named Users I am a delegate for, click theAdd… button.

  4. The Select User window will appear. Type in the name of the shared mailbox in the text box and click the Find button. Select the desired user from the search result list that appears and click OK.

  5. Click OK again to close the accounts window. After a short period of time, that shared mailbox will appear as a folder in the View list on the left side.
